Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just got some really bad news
Far-left radicals in the Democrat Party are trying to elevate Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as the future of the party.
Both Congresswomen are much more extreme than even previous socialist politicians, like Bernie Sanders.
But their plan won’t work after both Reps. Omar and Ocasio-Cortez got some really bad news.
Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are leading members of “The Squad,” which are a small group of insurgent Democrats looking to change the Party.
For decades, while always having their problems, the Democrat Party hasn’t been a fringe party.
But with Omar and Ocasio-Cortez pushing all-out socialism and open borders, they are rapidly shifting to the fringes.
And, as it turns out, that could end up being the end of the Democrat Party.
A new poll shows that key swing voters can’t stand Omar and Ocasio-Cortez.
The poll, which included 1,003 likely general-election voters, who embraced Trump in 2016 but are needed by Democrats in key House Districts, couldn’t be worse for them.
In the case of Ocasio-Cortez, 74% of voters knew who she was, but only 22% had a favorable view.
And in the case of Omar, 53% of voters recognized her, with only 9% having a favorable view.
Top Democrats are circulating a poll showing that one of the House’s most progressive members — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — has become a definitional face for the party with a crucial group of swing voters.
Why it matters: These Democrats are sounding the alarm that swing voters know and dislike socialism, warning it could cost them the House and the presidency. The poll is making the rounds of some of the most influential Democrats in America.
• Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view.
• Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — another member of The Squad — was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9% (not a typo) had a favorable view.
Socialism was viewed favorably by 18% of the voters and unfavorably by 69%.
• Capitalism was 56% favorable; 32% unfavorable.
• “Socialism is toxic to these voters,” said the top Democrat.
These are voters that Democrats need if they expect to take on Trump in 2020.
2016 was a year where many traditionally left-leaning voters moved over to support Trump’s message.
Unless they can flip those people, they are doomed.
And clearly, people like Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are not the candidates to do that.
